The Conservation of Paintings: Historical and Technical Discoveries
Wednesday, October 2
Barry Bauman, Fellow of the American Institute for Conservation and founder of Conservation Ventures, is a beloved art conservator who has carefully and generously restored 47 paintings from the Art Museum’s collection, some of which are on view in TLC Part II: Conservation and the Collection. Bauman’s presentation addresses the areas of study required for conservation work, and will reveal some of the historical and technical discoveries he’s made, including finding hidden signatures, recovering lost dates, correcting attributions, and even finding whole paintings underneath others.
